A hostage was a person who was held captive as leverage.
In 2269, the Shore Leave Planet's computer took Nyota Uhura hostage to force the "sky machine" that was her master to remain. It subsequently decided to "turn off" the landing party that was coming to rescue her, saying it had no need for more hostages. (TAS: "Once Upon a Planet")
When the two Klingons Korris and Konmel met a mother and her daughter in a corridor during a tour led by Worf, security chief Natasha Yar reported a possible hostage situation when one of the Klingons raised the girl. It was equalized when the girl was handed to Worf who gave her back to the mother. (TNG: "Heart of Glory")
